The mechanical behavior of Al–Fe–Cr aluminum matrix composites strengthened by nanoquasicrystalline and/or crystalline phases was studied in the temperature range of 77–573 K. The strength characteristics and elongation to fracture during tensile tests of Al94Fe2.5Сr2.5Ti1, Al94Fe2Cr2Ti2, Al94Fe2.5Сr2.5Ti0.7Zr0.3 alloys were determined. It was established that the Al94Fe2Cr2Ti2 composite alloy has the highest strength (σb ≥ 3.87 GPa) among wrought aluminum alloys with satisfactory plasticity (elongation to fracture δ ≥ 5% at 293 K) at the temperature of 573 K. Tribological tests have shown that the wear resistance of Al–Fe–Cr aluminum matrix composites is significantly higher in the case of lubrication than when dry friction occurs. In lubrication, the friction force is almost 5 times less as well. The Al94Fe2Cr2Ti2 composite is optimal by the combination of mechanical and tribological properties among the studied alloys due to the strengthening of the aluminum matrix by nanoparticles with both crystalline and quasicrystalline structures.
